According to the theory of intelligent design (ID), it is possible to infer from empirical evidence that some features of the natural world are best explained by an intelligent cause rather by than unguided processes. Although design arguments have a venerable history, the “ID movement,” as it is sometimes called, is quite recent.
ID is not a substitute for ignorance. If we don’t know the cause of something that does not mean it was designed. When we make design inferences—and all of us make them every day—we do so on the basis of evidence; the more evidence, the more reliable the design inference.
Since intelligent design relies on scientific evidence rather than on Scripture or religious doctrines, it is not biblical creationism. Intelligent design makes no claims about biblical chronology, and biblical creationists have clearly distinguished their views from ID. A person does not even need to believe in God to infer intelligent design in nature.
ID does not claim that design must be optimal; something may be designed even if it is flawed. ID does not deny the reality of variation and natural selection; it just denies that those phenomena can accomplish all that Darwinists claim they can accomplish.
I am an Intelligent Design (ID) advocate. I go further than many of the leading ID scientists, in that I will state unequivocally that the ultimate intelligent designer is the one and only God of creation. This is not the forum to discuss God – that is at www.iamnotnatheist.wordpress.com . if you want to find out about me, try: www.larrythecontrarian.wordpress.com . Leave a comment on any of them.

Why Intelligent Design. From the Oxford Dictionary: the theory that life, or the universe, cannot have arisen by chance and was designed and created by some intelligent entity. From Wikipedia: Intelligent design (ID) is the pseudoscientific view that “certain features of the universe and of living things are best explained by an intelligent cause, not an undirected process such as natural selection.” Can you detect a built in bias between the two.
